Review: The Zip Yard

Getting clothes to fit me exactly right is an absolute NIGHTMARE so getting my clothes altered is just something that I am used to doing.

The Zip Yard have been my saviour!!! The Zip Yard is a nationwide company and has a branch in Salthouse Lane in Ennis.

They altered 2 blazers from by taking them in, a pair of River Island chinos and a polo shirt from again taking them in.

I also gave them two shirts which I never wear anymore and they completely remodelled them for me.

The two blazers are from Boohoo, and they don’t carry the XS size, they weren’t overly big on me but they completely lacked any shape or structure. They were taken in an inch on either side and now they are perfect for me.

The leg on the chinos fitted lovely but the waist was too big and the t-shirt was just completely loose on me.

The navy and white American Eagle shirt was chopped and changed to give it a brand now look while the grey New Look shirt had too much of a very young vibe so some detail and the hood were removed making it more modern and up to date.

What I loved about getting these items altered was how professional the whole experience was. There were spacious changing rooms to try the clothes on and the seamstress pinned the sized perfectly.
